Williamson as a member of tbe Rock
Island city council, was one of the most
popular and con mend able in bis ex
perience aa a mem jer of the aldermanlc
body. It was tbe presentation of an or
dinance ordering t ie grading and paving
of Second avenue from Fourteenth street
to Twentieth street with cypress blocks,
with concrete foundation, and the curb
ing of tbe avenue with limestone. The
ordinance, which in the same as the one
prepared by City Attorney McEnlry for
granite except that it provides for cypress
specifications instead of granite, was put
upon its passage on its second reading
Tbe A nous very heartily endorses tbe
or 1i nance and trusts tbat Its provisions
will be carried ou without opposition.
The mayor is disposed to approve of it
and tbe sooner tbe zood work outlined in
it is commenced, tbe better. Cypress
blocks are more economical than granite,
brick or cedar, as the pavement can be
put down for $15 per square yard at
the outside. There can certainly be no
remonstracp ajjaiast it, as there was
The Andes favor ?d granite simply be
cause it believed such to be the wish of
property holders, but as they prefer cy
press, let it be so. From conversation
with property holders this morning, there
is every reason to believe that general
sentiment is favorable to tbe council's
course. Second avenue will, when this
work is continued, be one of the hand
somest thoroughfares in tbe land, and all
people will have reason to be proud of it.
Death of William Wasnrr.
William M., younger son of Mr. and
Mrs G. F. Wsgner, of 1507 Second
avenue, breathed hit last at 4:30 p. m.,
yesterday worn ott by pulmonary con
sumption bis sufferings from which bad
been, however, alleviated to the utmont
possible means by the trnder care of
bis parents and all around. William was
much liked; all who knew him wre
deeply grieved to hf ar of his illness, and,
as time went on, and it became certain
that bis pleasant smiles would
never be seen again, expressions
ot affection and regret for him and of
deep sympathy wl h his family, were
beard on every aid a. He was twenty
nine years and twenty-six days old, an
original member of the Wideawake hose
oompany, and a popular young man in
every sense. Tbe f jneral will occur at

A Deliberate (steal.
The official count of the vote of tbe
recent election by tbe couicil last night,
revealed four discrepancies in the
judges' count, pUclng McConochie's
majority at S3. Realizing that the
more the vote Is investigated tbe more
Mr. McConochie's majority dwindles
down, and fearing a contest which is
quite likely to be- made, tbe Union
garbles the official proceeding of tbe
coudcII and deliberately adds ten votes to
Mr. McConochie's total, making it 1280
instead of 1829 as the canvassing board
found, it and correspondingly raising the
majority from 22 to 32.

to the Jaetieea of the Feaev.
The township board of canvassers
composed of Supervisor Conrad Scbnei
der, Assessor John Barge, Collector
Wm. Gahagcn and Town Clerk Robert
Koeoler.met yesterday afternoon and can
vassed the vote of the township election
of last Tuesday, "completing its duties at
S o'clock. Tbe board found itself in a
peculiar predicament as to tbe matter of
the yote received by S. F. Cooke, S. C.
Cooke and T. J. Medill for the office of
justice of the peace. It was found that
8. F. Cooke received 1181 votes; S C.
Cooke 69 and T. J. Medlll, Jr., 1193.
While it was apparent that the votes catt
for "S. C. Cooke" were intended for "S.
F. Cooke," there being a typographical
error aa to initials in tbe printing of a
portion of the ticket, it was a fact that
Mr. Medlll bad received tbe greatest
number of votes cast. The board being
in a quandary, sought legal advice from
State's Attorney O'Mara, and upon his
opinion decided that upon tbe face of the
returns there wss no other alternative
than to declare Mr. Medill elected.
Teobnically and upon tbe face of the re
turns be was elected, though in the spirit
of the returns be was not.
After taking all the circumstances into
consideration and believing that tbe
votes cast for "8. O. Cooke" were In.
tended for "S. F. Cooke," Mr. Medill has
decided not to qualify. He is not an
xious to attain glory on tbe strength of
mistaken intentions, and while he will be
declared elected, be will not put Mr.
Cooke to the trouble of a contest which
would give him the office, but will simply
decline to accept the commission, thus
allowing Mr. Cook to hold over. The
spirit of liberality and consideration thus
manifested by Medill will not lose him
any of the staunch friends who gave bim
such an exceedingly complimentary vote
on this occasion, and it will make bim
many new ones.
The board found the results of tbe
township election to be as follows:

Mitring Opening- at the M-. A si
Two months ago tbe M. & K. informed
the publio to look forward for unusual
and unexpected bargains the coming
spring. They are now ready. Their
young army of clerks worked until 12
o'clock last night to get stock in readi
ness for their grand spring opening to
day. Never has there been such an ele
gant display of olothing shewn in Rock
Island, and never bave prices been so
low. One entire table, braced with iron
pillars, oontains an assortment of suits
for men at $5, not a garment in the lot
but what is worth double. gjme of these
suits are strictly all wool, warranted not
to fade, and made in first class manner.
Added to this there are suits that will
stand tbe racket as cheap as 52 93. But
you will be surprised to see the lines of
suiting M. & K. are selling at $7.50,
17.90. $3 35, $9, $9.50 to $12.50 per
fect " beauties. Customers in tbe store
last evening could scarcely believe it.and
everyone said they are the best value
tney had ever seen. Extra help has been
employed; customers will be waited upon
promptly. Inspection solicited.
eeoad Ward controversy.
The council last night found, upon the
official canvass of the returns, that there
was a tie as to aldermen in the Second
ward, as tbe judges of election found.
Both candidates, Messrs. Ulam and Het
ter, were present last night, and the
mayor, asking tbeir preferences, Mr.
Hetter Bald be preferred at once to settle
the matter according to law by lot. Mr.
Ulam stated that he bad believed be was
elected, and gave notice of a petition for
a recount. Tbe council fixed April 15 as
